Fire Damage Deodorization In Perdido Key Often Requires Combining Multiple Techniques

One day you could have an accident while cooking inside your Perdido Key home where nothing ignites to the point where there are flames but items inside your house smolder and cause them to smoke. Smoke consists of partially combusted particles that can flow throughout a building and cause fire damage in rooms of your residence that were far away from the source. These partially burnt substances can leave behind soot residues and malodor particles.

During some fire damage projects in Perdido Key, pungent aromas go away after all burnt materials and soot residues have been cleaned off and disposed of. In cases where you can still smell smoke inside your home after removing soils and charred items, a professional restoration company such as SERVPRO can utilize other techniques, equipment, and chemical deodorants to eliminate malodor particles and make your house smell, "Like it never even happened." Most methods require the application of chemical products that eliminate unpleasant aromas by masking them with a better smell or by chemically pairing with the malodor molecules and neutralizing them. Many industrial deodorants contain a formula of both masking and pairing agents, so that pleasant odors cover up the aroma of any malodor particles that did not get chemically neutralized by the pairing chemicals.

Since smoke can have different properties depending on what fuels get burned, it is possible that your house got affected by several different types of smoke and soot residues. For example, smoke coming from something like burnt plastic will adhere to surfaces differently than smoke created by cigarettes. The various forms of these gaseous, partially combusted particles can also leave behind a variety of foul odors.

Our SERVPRO technicians are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification or IICRC program and are trained in the various mitigation techniques for the different malodor sources that could exist in your building. However, figuring out and implementing which technique will work the best for each individual affected item would be time-consuming to diagnose and execute. Therefore, we usually combine several deodorization methods at the same time in hopes of eliminating all of the various kinds of malodor particles present after the blaze took its toll on your property.

If at first, we find that our deodorization procedures were not 100% effective, then we continue using other chemicals and application techniques until the foul odors are completely gone. If your property ever gets negatively affected by smoke, call SERVPRO of West Pensacola at (850) 469-1160 24/7 because We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
